If you’re looking for a Halloweenish book to enjoy this weekend, Wicked Liaison is still available, both in e-book and in print.

In terms of writing, I am now working on the eighth book in The Diamonds in the Rough series. After mostly editing last month, it’s great to be putting a story together again and being a bit more creative. I’ve missed it!

Also in the news, Once Upon a Townsbridge Story is being formatted at the moment, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to announce its release next week – I’ll be sure to keep you posted. And as we say goodbye to October and move into November, I’ll be gearing up for the release of The Formidable Earl on November 17th with tour dates and additional giveaways to come.

The fourth book in the Townsbridge series, A Duke for Miss Townsbridge, is now available in e-book format (print to come). 

This book follows Sarah Townsbridge’s romance with the Duke of Brunswick , a man whose tragic past has caused him to turn away from love. The problem of course, is that Sarah is precisely what he needs and not falling in love with her will be quite impossible. 

In honor of this new release I’m hosting a giveaway. Just click HERE to enter for a chance to win a $10 Amazon gift card!

Also in the news, Once Upon a Townsbridge Story is almost ready! This book gives an insight to how Margaret and George, the Townsbridge parents, met. It’s in the final rounds of edits now so it won’t be long before I can release it (for free), but due to its length, it will only be available in ebook format until I put out the Townsbridge anthology next year, where it will be included as a prologue.

However, PAPERBACK lovers should be happy to know that Wicked Liaison is available in PRINT for a LIMITED TIME! Please click HERE to order your copy of this 800+ page romance collection today!

In terms of work, this past week I’ve been editing the seventh book in my Diamonds in the Rough series. Her Scottish Scoundrel is now available for pre-order in ebook format. Print will be added later.

Fall is officially here and I’m busy as always J My project for this week has included writing a prequel to the Townsbridge series. This will be a short story about Viscount and Viscountess Roxley and how they fell in love. Once it’s completed I’ll list it for free – more details to come on this later. For now, I have A Duke for Miss Townsbridge releasing soon on October 20th. I love how these two meet: Matthew Donovan is an arrogant duke who makes an impromptu proposal with every confidence Sarah Townsbridge will say yes, because… Well, he is a duke.

Hmm…

Turns out Sarah wants more than a title. She wants love, which just happens to be the one thing he cannot give her. Or can he? He’s certainly about to find his life turned upside down and his resolve put to every possible test.

Now, as the weather gets cooler and you sneak indoors to cozy up with a lovely read, consider giving Rogues on My Mind a whirl! This set is comprised of previously published novellas by five different authors and includes When Love Leads to Scandal from my Townsbridge series. Or if you’re gearing up for Halloween and you’re in the mood for some paranormal Gothic romance tales, you might want to try Wicked Liaison.

And with the upcoming release of The Formidable Earl next month, The Forgotten Duke is currently on sale for ONLY $0.99 until October 11th, so if you haven’t read this book yet, you now have the chance to grab it for a low price so you can catch up on The Diamonds In The Rough series before the next book arrives.

Leaves are beginning to fall off the trees and the temperatures dropping. We kept delaying turning on the heat but had to give in when we woke one morning to 9 °C (48 °F). But the good news is that with colder weather comes the urge to bundle up in a comfy chair with a good book.

If you love box sets as much as I do, Rogues on My Mind will be releasing on September 29th. This set is comprised of previously published novellas by five different authors and includes When Love Leads to Scandal from my Townsbridge series.

As we head further into fall, I’ll be gearing up for the release of The Formidable Earl, but before then, I’ll be running a promotion on The Forgotten Duke from October 28th-11th. There will be more on that in my next newsletter.

Mid September is here so if you’re like me you’re already busy compiling your fall and winter reading list. Or maybe you’ve already done so? In any case, here are a few (in my opinion) excellent new releases you won’t want to miss:

Any Rogue Will Do by debut author Bethany Bennett – October 13th

The Princess and the Rogue by Kate Bateman – December 29th

If you’d like to add a great freebie to your e-reader you should try Erica Ridley’s, The Viscount’s Tempting Minx.

My own novella, The Governess Who Captured His Heart is also available for free. Just click HERE to grab your copy.

And here comes my sales pitch 😉 Don’t forget to grab your copy of Wicked Liaison! It’s in KU right now and the reviews are phenomenal! You really don’t want to miss this collection which also includes a couple of Beauty and the Beast stories. Come on, how can you resist that?
